even the teachers. >> the phrase itself isn't the problem. being a distraction is a problem and that can't be banned. >> thank you for watching "fox & friends" first and "fox & friends" starts now. >> bye. >>elisabeth: good morning. it is friday, october 5. i'm elisabeth hasselbeck. we begin with a fox news alert. while you were sleeping we learned much more about the woman who tried to smash through the white house gates with the baby in the back seat. live with developing details. >> one democratic congresswoman didn't waste any time speculating what happened with the blame regarding the shutdown. >> no one knows what drives this person to do this. but what i would say to you is let's get our wheels back on, serve the american people. >>steve: is that appropriate? we report, you decide. >>brian: don't mess with
tiger woods when she is in the zone. not even if you're his girlfriend. >> don't turn around. >> he's like what the heck? >>elisabeth: not funny, i guess. >>brian: i guess not. "fox & friends" starts now. ♪ ♪ >>steve: i guess it's concentration. he was so in the zone he didn't want his beautiful girlfriend doing something behind him. >>brian: that's his job. >>steve: it's golf! >>brian: it's his job. they play him well. he got golfer of the year. you don't get golfer of the year if someone puts ice down your neck. >>steve: meantime, we've
got our top story. >>elisabeth: we're going to get right to a fox news alert. a young mother is dead after causing chaos during a wild police chase around the white house this morning. we're learning more about that woman. >>brian: we've been following the story in washington as it broke and the aftermath today. >> good morning. the video we saw on the internet yesterday pretty unbelievable. a woman driving a black sedan slamming into a barricade near the white house before spinning around striking an officer before the police chase toward capitol hill, police surrounding the car working to end the incident before she took off again. this as witnesses stood by in horror. >> we heard the gunshots and then a black infinity driving by and a whole bunch of cop cars and then they were chasing it. then we heard pow, pow, pow like gunfire, and then like an explosion. >> police did strike and
kill the woman. reports are identifying her as 34-year-old mere yam carey. -- mir yam cary. her mother did tell the media she did suffer from postpartum depression. an 18-month-old was in the car at the time. that child was unharmed. >>brian: it seems crazy, what's taken place in washington, d.c. in the past three weeks. it seems like everything is out of control, but yet there's more security and police officers and secret service in washington, d.c. than i think anywhere else. >>elisabeth: thankfully they did have the officers there. it's reported they weren't even getting paid to be there. it seems those measures that have been implemented worked. going back to the comments we just heard. am i hearing wrong or was there a drawing in of
what's going on with the shutdown of the government and this tragic incident that happened yesterday? did i hear that wrong? >>steve: you're trying to connect the dots. we all are. we have heard ever since this shutdown started, mainstream media, the democrats, the president of the united states, "it's the republicans' fault." blame the republicans. in fact, a g.o.p. to them is for good old pinata, because whenever they need to, they'll just beat that pinata. yesterday on the floor of the u.s. house, congresswoman sheila jackson lee combined the shutdown with what happened yesterday. is she blaming the republicans? does it sound like it to you? listen. >> god knows the tragedy of this poor person who came on the hill in a black car, no one knows what drives this person to do this. but what i would say to you is let's get our wheels back on, serve the american people, bring them back,
vote for a bill today that will open the government. >>steve: no one knows what would drive a person to do this, but let's pass a bill. >>brian: right. basically this woman was hearing voices, postpartum depression. i don't know. that may be innuendo. the problem is that congresswoman sheila jackson lee has a track record. remember one time she was on capitol hill. she asked one of the questions, she asked a nasa official if they could use the mars rover to take pictures of the flag on the moon that neil armstrong left. so the mars rover -- >>steve: for a shot of the moon. >>brian: she also indicated all those who wore sheets a long time have lifted them off and now wear clothing with a sign that says i am the tea party. she has a bit of a track record. >>steve: we could be here all day talking about her. >>brian: -- don't condemn the gang bangers. so many shooting deaths because guns are brought illegally into chicago. >>elisabeth: time and
time again we're facing a discussion that's not happening. that's mental illness. we have seen a high percentage of these tragedies in recent days, months, weeks have to do with mental illness. in 2008 the mental health parody act was passed. that was to cover people with mental illness. postpartum would fall into that. it was faulty. obamacare -- i think there is a hole in it. i think it's been addressed by those in rhode island. it's been addressed by patrick kennedy's son. i believe there is a way for republicans to get in and make the point that mental illness should be covered. 6% of obamacare -- only 6% right now covers mental illness. this is something that should be expanded. maybe that's the way to get something done. >>brian: we have not been treating them. >>steve: maybe what sheila jackson lee was doing, the same thing rahm emanuel always preached,
don't let a good crisis go to waste. something in the news and she uses that to say let's get things going. again, maybe she's taking a cue from the president of the united states. he continues to blame the republicans. and now what he's saying is i don't get to go on my trip to southeast asia because they won't cave. jay carney issued a statement last night, said the cancellation of this trip is another consequence of the house republicans -- darn it -- forcing a shutdown of the government. thisñi completely avoidable shutdown is setting back our ability to create jobs through promotion of u.s. exports and interest in the largest emerging region in the world. you darned republicans. >>brian: two things. number one, if the administration ever gets anything done, it's joe áe?ek$e's the one with the relationships, the one with the history, the one used to legislating. he has not been dispatched. as far as the president goes, secretary of state kerry will be there so it's not like we'll be represented. in terms of what the
president isçó doing, he is leading the charge but the theme of everyone interviewed, from the congressmen in washington to the president in washington, d.c., it's not even the republicans. they're being held hostage by the tea party. it's a sm31ñr faction who control one-third of the power base in america. and they're trying desperately not only to extend -- i think, to maximize the pain of the shutdown. they are also trying to knock out the tea party for good. and actually i think they're strengthening it. >>elisabeth: in 2010 the president canceled a trip to this area as well. i believe it was to australia and possibly malaysia to push obamacare and get it going and off the ground. this isn't the first time this has happened. certainly our president in the philippines and the -- our presence in the philippines and mall slay shah has -- and malaysia has a lot to do with the economy and military presence. >>steve: when barack
obama was president in the beginning he owned the senate and houfrpt. -- and the house of representatives. he couldn't get anything done. now we've got divided government. you've got to compromise. the president has been unwilling to compromise. however republicans have said let's fund n.i.h. let's go ahead and provide money for the national parks and things like that as well. you know what? the r.n.c., we mentioned, has offered to keep the world war ii memorial open. and down in arizona, because they have closed the grand canyon, jan brewer, the governor of that great state, and some local businesses have said it doesn't make any sense, this is a state property, let's go ahead and run it even though it's a national park. >>elisabeth: what was the answer to them? >>steve: the superintendent of the grand canyon said no, can't do it. even though we've got these outside entities from the national park service saying we're going to provide the cash, the national government saying absolutely not. are they just trying to exact some pain on the people of the united
states, a la the sequester? it looks like that? >>brian: the democrats have filled in the grand canyon and will not dig it out until after this. the biggest news, house speaker john boehner tells "the new york times" through sources is that he will not hold the debt ceiling off, he will not default -- he will not allow the united states to default on its debt. >>steve: they are having a strategy meeting this morning. >>elisabeth: for the rest of today's headlines we'll head over to heather nauert. >> got headlines to bring you now. talk about a capital offense. republican congressman sean duffy wase1 assaulted wednesday night as he walked to the capitol to vote on legislation. a stranger started screaming at him and grabbed his arm. the congressman was not hurt. police are now investigating the attack. they believe, they say, it may have been sparked by the government shutdown. we'll keep you posted on that. this guy men toward khalid sheikh mohammed, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, and he just
announced his candidacy for the president of afghanistan. the former warlord has registered for next year's election. his pick for vice president also a former warlord. this morning the biker accused of viciously beating a man in front of his wife and young child is expected to turn himself in to police today. sources say the suspect is 38-year-old reginald chance whose facebook page says he's from ghana and works as a driver for a sandwich shop in queen. the victim's wife is breaking her silence. she says we were faced with a life-threatening situation and my husband was forced under the circumstances to take action that he did in order to protect the lives of our entire family. we'll keep watching that. >> finally, don't mess with tiger woods, even if you're his girlfriend. look at this. >> don't turn around. he's like what hay?
what are you -- >> what was she putting on his back. look at that little thing right there. it's a squirrel. yeah, that's a squirrel. and that's lindsey vonn. she's putting it on his shoulder. he's not amused by this. his reaction pretty funny there. get away from me while i watch golf. >>brian: let him go to the top of the mountain and put that on her before she skis downhill. that's his job. he's at work. >>elisabeth: i like the ice idea better. >>brian: what if your husband came here and put a squirrel on your back while you're reading a prompter. that would be horrible. i think that relationship need some counseling. coming up straight ahead, we'll examine this in the break. not qualified for obamacare subsidies? don't worry about it. you can lie. up next, why the government won't be able to verify who's qualified. >>elisabeth: so much for the land of the free. people being told to up

(whistling)
>>brian: according to a brand-new fox poll, 54% of americans still believe obamacare will be all or partly repealed. maybe more would think so if they knew how easy it was to scam the system. the government will not be able to verify whether you qualify for a subsidy or not so anyone can apply and lie? joining us is the senior fellow at the manhattan institute. there is no security to a lot of this increasing? >> there's some security,
but the obama administration delayed some of the key security provisions for a year along with other things like the employer mandate. >>brian: how can they crack down on your salary level? how can they crack down on your age, your income? >> there's a couple of things. in order to be eligible for the subsidies on the obamacare exchanges your income has to be within a certain bracket. it has to be between one times and four times the federal poverty level which for a child with adult is between $11,000 and $45,000 a year. the key thing is what's your income? if your income is below a certain level, you don't file an i.r.s. tax return. normally the i.r.s. can verify your income. if you don't file a tax return, how does the i.r.s. know how much money you make? >>brian: they were relying on the honor system? >> basically what's happening. another component is in order to be eligible for subsidies on the obamacare exchange you have to prove your employer didn't offer
you affordable coverage. there is a reporting requirement around that that also is being delayed. >>brian: you've got to say does your employer offer you coverage? they didn't. if there is going to be follow-up, you don't have the manpower or woman power to follow that through. here are the rules for collecting applicant information. the i.r.s. won't verify income levels, going by the honor system. it won't be in effect next year. it will be in effect in 2015. 15 states affected as well as individuals with cash income. we're not telling you not to tell the truth. we're trying to tell you that maybe some people in the system are scamming the system because they don't have to tell the truth. >> there's going to be incentive for people to misrepresent their income to gain subsidies. some of these navigators the administration is hiring in order to get people in the system, look, they have a huge incentive to enroll as many people as possible because if they enroll a lot of people, the law becomes more difficult to repeal. i expect we're going to see
a lot of funny business around those income borders. how do you call back that money later? that's going to be hard for the i.r.s. to enforce. >>brian: is there a political angle to this? >> yeah. the more people you enroll in obamacare, you create a constituency to keep the law in place. i think progressives and the obama administration are focused on that. >>brian: so far a lot of people exploring, a lot of people looking in but very few are signing up. straight ahead, you're going to love this one. prison guards are not getting paid thanks to a shutdown. but the inmates, well, they are. really? really? then are you tired of annoying co-workers, like this? >> okay. george, check it out.ñi three times around, no feet.

connecticut. elisabeth, over to you. >>elisabeth: times at the office have changed between the relaxed dress code and distractions of new technology. we wanted to know what's really acceptable in the work world she is days and our next guest has written more than a dozen books on manners and etiquette. her latest, "miss manners minds your business." joining us now is judith. good morning. thanks for joining. we're kind of in this open format with work. "blurred lines" is the popular song this summer. you say that's the inspiration behind your latest and greatest book? >> it is an idea, a very sweet idea, but disastrous, which is that if you know people really well and you're relaxed around them and you're just being yourself around them, you will get along fine. then i get flooded with mail, people objecting to all the people who work
around them who they can't stand. and -- >>elisabeth: this open format at work leads to a bigger problem; right? how are you to create your own space and draw a line in the office space which is completely open without borders? >> it is without borders, and you can hardly put a brick wall up. but you can put a psychological wall up, and that's called professional manners. people are using social manners in the office, giving birthday parties, asking nosey questions, all that kind of thing. professional manners was a psychological barrier which says we will work cheerfully and cooperatively together but i don't have to know everything about you and you don't have to know everything about me. >>elisabeth: you mentioned birthday parties. what about gifts? >> that is another reversal. in their private lives people rightly all the time, how much money do i give my nephew for graduating? how much money do i give my
sister-in-law for a third marriage. they're paying their relatives. and at the office they want to know how to select the right present, just the right thing for them. what is that doing in the office? go home and buy nice things for your friends instead. >>elisabeth: what if you don't have the job yet but you want it. how personal do people get? your advice? >> they're hiring you for a professional job, so do you really want to put your adorable personality out there to be judged? i think you want to show that you can do the job. the worst advice people get on that is just be yourself. nobody knows what that means any way. but who would you be if you didn't want to be yourself? but there is another part of yourself that is professional, or should be. that's what you need to show on a job interview. >>elisabeth: judith,

so excited. i think the mom is more excited than the kid. go figure. got some news to bring you. federal prison guards aren't being paid right now because of the shutdown, but the inmates are. wow. 300 prison guards in oxford, wisconsin, are still reporting to work because they're considered essential workers. but the inmates are paid out of a different fund and that falls under the bureau of prison's budget. that's weird. it should have been a routine traffic stop but it turned into anything but. an oregon state trooper pulls over a driver for speeding, and what happens next is pretty tough to watch. take a look. >> sir, please get back to your car for me now. i told you, you were speeding. >> shots fired. shots fired. >> hard to believe that

we've been talking about the liberal bias and mainstream media for many years on this channel. but just to look at the fact that it was 21 to zero where it's blame the republicans, blame the republicans. don't even mention the democrats. that's shocking. >> exactly. as my sister likes to say, go ahead and blame the tea party. that didn't work so well for the british 200 years ago so the media better make sure they're on the right side of history this time. there is another issue with the media's portrayal. that is the founding fathers drew a line in the sand when it came to taxes. the supreme court declared obamacare a tax so the media should recognize the republicans have pretty good precedent for what they're doing which is standing unfor a tax the american people don't want. >>steve: we showed a poll that showed maybe people are listening to the radio, because when right here it
says who is most responsible for the government shutdown? 25% people say boehner, 24% say the president. >> the public should be able to decide based on what the media reports who is responsible. if they listen to the major networks they're getting a one-sided narrative rightnow. >>steve: when you watch what's going on on capitol hill, it is pretty clear what the republicans are doing is tg know what everybody disagrees on. the republicans and the democrats disagree on obamacare. but they can agree onsome things like keeping the world war ii memorial open, funding for n.i.h. and veterans services and stuff like that. they agree on that, and yet they won't even bring up in the senate these things for a vote, which is extraordinary, because people would be going why don't they open it up if you don't hear that on mainstream media. >> the republicans have
sent over four different c.r.'s before the shutdown. democrats wouldn't handle those in the senate. since the shutdown they have sent five different spending bills to fund different aspects of the government and the senate won't give most of those a look. it really is an example of when you look at the media, are you hearing about those options that the republicans are offering? not really. >>steve: republicans are offering options but the democrats are saying we're not going to negotiate. but when you have a divided government, elisabeth, nobody gets everything they want, but you've got to sit at a table and you've got to say something otherñi than no, no, no. >> you'd think these politicians would learn that in kindergarten but apparently they flunked it or something like that. i don't know. but the president doesn't have much incentive to negotiate when the media is on his side this way. one of your first responsibilities as a political journalist is to hold the government accountable and the media isn't doing that right now so he has no incentive to want to negotiate.
office. but which is worth your cash? >> brian: i don't know, elisabeth. >> elisabeth: come on. >> brian: will george clooney and sandra bullock's send "runner, runner" crashing to earth? >> steve: here to break it down, joins us from london. we know you're excited about this "gravity" movie. you got to talk brian into it because he says it looks like a couple of people floating around. >> brian, this is no "fred clause," my friend. this is one of the best movies i've seen in years. i've seen the movie three times now. i saw it three times for two reasons: one, 'cause i love it so much. two, i wanted to give the viewer the option of how they should see it. 3d, imax, 2 d. it was worth it in 3d imax. you feel like you're actual will he in space. after an accident occurs in space, they're left adrift and they have to save their own lives.
the scene you see in the trailers where she's floating away, that's the first 17 minutes of the movie. there is still 75 minutes left in the film. it is one of the most incredible, intense, gut wrenching experiences i've ever had in the cinema in my entire life. i'll tell you right now, in my opinion, this is the game changer of our generation if a technical standpoint. look at the course of history of cinema. you have hitchcock, stanley kubrick, george lucas, george cameron. this is our guy. he's positioned himself as one of the best directors of our generation. >> steve: how many stars? >> i gave it five out of five. >> steve: whoa! >> this is my first five out of five this entire year. and sandra bullock deserves best actress. >> brian: four years to make? >> oh, yes. the incredible special effects, most of it is cgi, but they're
integrating human performances into the movie. it's incredible to watch. i'll tell you now, i had nerd tears and real tears streaming down my face. >> elisabeth: i love the tears. but kevin, did you save any stars for "runner, runner"? >> oh, this is a train wreck. run away as fast as you can. here is the thing, you're dealing with a gambling film that has poker elements and they're doing these poker metaphors. like this is your chance, go all in on this one. it's so cheesy. i hate metaphors like that. i gave it 1 1/2 out of 5. affleck was lazy and boring. >> steve: his message is, go toe "gravity." kevin mccarthy joining us from london where he's brokering a peace deal. thank you for joining us for joining us live. >> you can tweet me if you want to know where the best imax 3d
heat service in -- theater is in your city. >> steve: thank you. >> elisabeth: coming up, a man forced to close his private camp site because of the government shutdown. why? he doesn't rely on government cash. but with a mortgage. and the furniture's a lot nicer. and suddenly, the most important person in my life is someone i haven't even met yet. who matters most to you says the most about you. at massmutual we're owned by our policyowners, and they matter most to us. as you plan your next step, we'll help you get there. some kind of... this is... an alien species. reality check: a lot of 4g lte coverage maps don't really look like much at all. i see the aleutian islands. looks like a duck. it looks like... america... ish. that's a map. that's a map of the united states. check the map.

they're putting a ban on that expression. >> elisabeth: no. >> steve: it's true. "fox & friends," hour two for this friday starts right now. >> brian: mo more hump day. >> elisabeth: what's next? no speed humps? i see those signs everywhere. >> brian: those speed bumps. you call them speed humps? >> elisabeth: sometimes they say humps. >> brian: really? if off picture that says speed humps, send them to us 'cause i don't believe you. >> elisabeth: i have. >> brian: where do you travel? >> elisabeth: back me up here. >> steve: brian, you're the one who doesn't travel. you got to get off long island. >> brian: i see a sign that says slow children, which i was not fast as a child. the shutdown, did you think it would last four days? >> steve: on monday, i predicted five days.
it doesn't look like it will wrap up today. and john boehner said he will not permit the country to default. and now the top story out of washington. a young mother is dead this morning after causing chaos during a wild police chase that started at the white house, ended at the capitol. this morning we're learning more about that woman. apparently she was a dental hygienist. elizabeth prann is following the story. >> good morning. we have new details about the woman behind the wheel this morning. reports are identifying her as 34-year-old miriam carney from connecticut. while authorities have not released a motive, her mother is telling the media her daughter, who was a dental hygienist, did suffer from postpartum depression following the birth her daughter. this as a jittery dc recounts the accounts of yesterday, when she was seen slamming her black sedan into barricades which forgets the white house property. she did not heed officers attempts to stop. she struck an officer and then took off toward capitol hill.
police at one point had her completely surrounded before she took off once again and they were forced to shoot into the vehicle. those officers receiving praise for ending the incident without more loss of life. >> i will say that those at the white house and at the capitol, the security perimeters worked. they did exactly what they were supposed to do and they stopped a suspect from breaching the security perimeter both in a vehicle at both locations. >> remember, those officers aren't getting any paychecks with the government shutdown. they are essential employees, which requires them to be there. elisabeth, brian and steve, back to you. >> steve: we'll move on to the whole budget thing in just a second. brian, look right here. according to google images, i just typed in speed hump signs -- >> brian: there are -- i never in my life seen something that said speed hump. >> elisabeth: maybe you were going too fast. >> brian: maybe that is. >> steve: maybe they just do it
on wednesday. >> brian: fantastic. >> elisabeth: i'm not losing my mind. >> steve: no, you're not. >> elisabeth: would you believe one democratic congresswoman didn't bother to wait for the packs and actually suggested we think the government shutdown go wild. >> god knows the tragedy of this poor person who came on the hill in a black car. no one knows what drives this person to do this. but what i would say to you is, let's get our wheels back on, serve the american people, bring them back, vote for a bill today that will open the government. >> steve: oh, man. so is she blaming the republicans? you know, if she is, she wouldn't be the first one. the president of the united states continues to blame the republicans for pretty much everything. and late yesterday his official spokesperson, jay carney, blamed the republicans of course for the fact that the president of the united states can't now go
to asia. >> elisabeth: right. but it's not the first time the trip has been canceled. march 2010 he delayed a trip as well to indonesia and australia in order to push obamacare initially and give it a jump then. certainly going there was important, right? malaysia is a place where just for business purposes alone, we should have -- i think it would have been the first meeting with our president in 40 years. >> brian: he shouldn't have waited to negotiate for so long of the i think that would have been appropriate to bring up in august. we worked through the summer. we work through august, as far as we know. so the president of the united states is not going on his trip. again, secretary of state kerry will be representing him like he was in malaysia. he's hopefully going to get something done. what i found so fascinating over the last five days, i think as much as democrats are saying we're in a shutdown, lockdown and fine will he changed the dialogue and we're actually winning in some of the polls, i also think they see an opportunity to take on their big nemesis, one they can not figure out. that's the tea party.
wherever you go, no matter how big or how small this congressman is, whether a freshman or the majority leader, they go out of their way to vilify the tea party and tag this with him. but i actually think they're strengthening him in the process. >> steve: you could be right about strengthening the tea party. but you have to figure a number of the democrats are feeling frustrated because a faction of democrats in the house have been pushing for, okay, let's go ahead and get rid of that medical device thing. it's all part of obamacare. we really don't need that. meanwhile, even though the white house democrats blame republicans, it's interesting because it looks as if the people out there watching are watching fox news. they're listening to the radio, looking at the internet, because the blame for the shutdown looks like it's pretty much even on republicans like john boehner and on the president of the united states. they're both in the mid 20s. >> elisabeth: look at this. this to me indicates the american people are certainly
thinking for themselves and thankfully not allowing the administration to dictate to them where the blame should go. there is actually another poll that americans do not approve of the president on any issue. they disapprove. check this out here. >> brian: look at the breakdown. approval on health care, 45, 51 decision approve. iran, 42, 46. on the economy, trailing by 16 points. on syria, people do remember that. 38-51. on the deficit, which the president has said he has cut in half, only 35%. >> elisabeth: look at the 51% here. health care and syria have the same disapproval rating. >> brian: basically it's a dead heat on who america blames. >> steve: yeah, it is. exactly. even though the main stream media are squarely blaming republicans, and we just detailed a town hall and elisabeth meineke that of the big three networks, they blame
networks 21 times. they didn't blame the democrats a single time. maybe things are turning. but a lot of people out there on capitol hill and in the white house are blaming republicans. so let's just jump on the band wagon. let's start blaming the republicans for everything. your car didn't start this morning? blame the republicans. they used to blame george bush for everything. blame the republicans. we asked you for some e-mail. i'm going to blame the republicans because a bunch of e-mail just came in. >> elisabeth: that's right. and ron actually wrote in. he said, blame the gop for the affordable health care act. that way the democrat also not want to fund it. >> brian: there is not even a single vote. that would be you in mississippi. tropical storm is coming to mississippi coast. damn, those republican, lol. >> steve: from roy, next the republicans will be blamed for what hump day is. hump day driving us crazy. all right, send us more e-mails. what should we blame the republicans for next? in washington, it seems like they're blaming them for everything. >> elisabeth: that's right. we're not going to blame heather nauert for bringing us the
latest headlines. >> everything is brian's fault. >> brian: wow, you really drilled down on this. >> elisabeth: #blamebrian. >> love it. 9 minutes after the hour and some headlines. talk about a capitol offense, shaun duffy was just here a couple weeks ago, was assaulted wednesday night as he walked to the capitol to vote on legislation. a stranger started screaming at him and then grabbed his arm. the republican congressman from wisconsin was not hurt. police are now investigating the attack and they believe it may have been sparked by the government shutdown. he mentored khalid sheikh mohammed, the mastermind of the 9-11 attacks, and he just announced his can did city for -- candidacy for pakistan. he's registered for next year's election.
his pick for vice president is also a former warlord. nice. the biker accused of viciously beat ago man in front of his wife and his child is expected to turn himself in to police later today. sources say that the suspect is 38-year-old reginald chance. his facebook page says that he's from gee i can't in a and works as -- giana and works as a driver for benny's sandwich shop in queens. the victim's wife break her silence. she says we were faced with a life-threatening situation and my husband was forced under the circumstances to take the actions that he did in order to protect the lives of our entire family. his beloved boat was destroyed after he found the boston bombing suspect hiding in it in his backyard. now more than five months later, he has a new boat thanks to donations from strangers all across the country. he says he didn't spend all of the $50,000 that was raised in order to buy the 24-foot fixer upper.
he donated the rest of the money to charities that benefit the bombing victims. really nice of him to do. every guy i know who would have spent every single penny. >> steve: excellent. thank you. it is now exactly 7:11 in new york city. >> brian: a man forced to close his private camp ground. he doesn't rely on federal cash. why is he caught up in this? we'll find out next. >> elisabeth: and it's a commercial that has everyone laughing. >> guess what today is. >> it's hump day. >> woowoo! >> elisabeth: what one elementary school does not think it's funny. they're putting a ban on hump day. stay tuned. >> guess what day it is. huh? anybody? julie, guess what day it is. oh, come on, i know you can hear me. mike, mike, mike, mike. what day is it mike? [ laughter ] listen, guess what today is.o ho
>> brian: he runs private camp sites and doesn't rely on any federal cash. so why is he being forced to close down shop during the shutdown? joining us right now is warren myer, president of recreation resource management. where do you run and what do you run? >> i run about 104 service camp grounds around the country, from florida to washington. you're right, we run them under concession contract, entirely with our own money. we pay for everything. >> brian: you give a percentage of the concessions to the federal government, right? >> right. in fact, so they don't cost the federal government money to run. they actually make money as long as they're open for the federal government. they make 10 to 20% of the revenue that i come -- my income goes back to the forest service. >> brian: you were told originally it's not going to affect you. then you get this. congress has not provided
appropriations for fiscal year 2014 pursuant to legal requirements. the forest service unable to -- blah, blah, blah, we're shutting you down. what is your reaction to that? >> first we were flabbergasted because we've been through a number of government shutdowns, our company is over 30 years old. in the '90s, we were never shut down. yes, the guidance was never shut down. we've been confused. we have no idea why we're shutting down. really, i don't think the forest service does. the forest service was ready to allow us to be open. we got guidance that somebody over their head was telling them that we had to shut down. >> brian: someone over the head of the forestry service. who would that be? you're talking washington? >> your guess is as good as mine. up above them is department of agriculture. all that's up there is the white house. something in the administration is giving them guidance that these private camp grounds that don't take federal money have to close. >> brian: the only thing you can
assume, and you don't have to say this, we're trying to maximize pain. the same game plan as when the sequester was first put forward. warren, people in all seriousness, have plans. there is marriages and weddings set to take place this weekend, right? >> yeah. we had one location alone, we have six weddings planned for tomorrow. if you want to see people panic, those people are calling us. it's very frustrating for me because i'm perfectly happy to pay all the costs to keep these things open. i'm just not being allowed to. >> brian: why don't you just do it? >> yeah. this is my business. it's a tough decision for me because the forest service has the right to suspend these contracts and basically what they're doing, they're suspending the contracts. so they have the legal right under the contract to do so. but whether they have the justification under the sequester is a different story. >> brian: republicans did single out and say we're going to keep open the parks and democrats say no, do the whole thing or nothing. warren myers, just trying to run his business.
thanks so much for joining us. we reached out for comment from the u.s. forest service. but due to the shutdown, the office were closed. warren, thanks. i can hear your frustration. coming up on our show, we all want to know, is there life after death? our next guest says yes. she shares her conversation from the other side with her son. and we just found out how much money lois lerner could be walking away with after calling it quits from the irs, leaving in shame. ♪ ♪

>> brian: time for news by the numbers. first, $102,600. that's how much scandalized irs official lois lerner's taxpayer funded pension could be per year. that would add up to nearly 4 million over her lifetime. this all according to the national taxpayers union. she announced her retirement last month and she had been on paid leave since may. next, 2.9 million. that's the number of customer records that adough bee lost after hackers gained access to their account. and $5 million, that's how much the insurance policy was on the titanic. the original documents were released yesterday and it turns out they were signed just 15 days before it went to the bottom of the ocean. people. >> steve: thank you, brian. >> elisabeth: our next guest is always skeptical of all things heaven in the after life until her 20-year-old son passed away. not only does she believe, she
claims she communicated with him after death. >> steve: she chronicles her experience in the book "my son and the after life" and jailly butler, the medium who she says channels her son. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> elisabeth: this weekend on sunday it will be four days since -- four years. >> yeah. >> elisabeth: he had struggled with turret's, bipolar growing up and at the age of 20, he did take his life. but three days after that, he appeared to your husband. >> yes. absolutely. my husband was by his truck, by eric's truck and all of a sudden, there is eric. and eric said, papa, this is how i felt before. and he leans into him and he felt this horrible energy, this sadness. and then he backs up and he leans in again. this is how i feel now. and my husband felt euphoria. it was amazing. >> elisabeth: in a time when you
must have been desperately seeking comfort. >> oh, yeah. >> elisabeth: he did. did you feel comfort with that right away? >> not at all. i was raised by atheists. as a physician, of course, my whole educational background is science. so we're taught that nothing exists unless you can perceive it with your senses. i was in a difficult place. i really was. >> steve: so he visited your husband. >> uh-huh. >> steve: and then he visited grandpa. visited a friend. didn't visit you. but you decided to reach out to jamie. why? >> that took a long time. it was because a blog member suggested it. first i had an experience with my father where -- who is an atheist. so consider the irony here. my father -- this is three days after also. my father was his chair and all of a sudden, he looks up, there is eric standing there. and then he crawls up -- turns
into a little boy and climbs up in his lap and my father is i'm startled. then i started reading books on quantum physics, read books on altered dimensions, i don't know how many accounts of near death experiences. >> steve: through the blogs you connected with jamie. what do you help her do? >> find her answers. so i'm able, since childhood, to see energy and see people who have passed away. not something that i wanted to do. it just kind of came natural. and when lisa connected with me, it wasn't so much about find -- this is what i like so much about her. it wasn't so much about finding the details to kind of have her prove for evidence. she came from a scientific background, but it was the potency of her questions. she wasn't going to take everything lightly. it allowed eric to really show his true colors exactly who this
was and as you read in the book, he's got a very sailor-like language. >> didn't learn it from me. >> this conversation was very unique. >> elisabeth: will this -- you can continue to be connected to him? >> oh, sure. of course. >> steve: in the beginning, you were the last person to believe any of this stuff? >> absolutely. i did not want to believe. i did not want to believe because i felt like if i did believe, and then i found out it was some cruel cosmic joke, then it would be like losing him again. but forever. >> elisabeth: we'll call it cosmic comfort maybe. >> i like that. >> elisabeth: we'll be thinking of you this weekend and your family. jamie, thanks for being here with us. >> thanks so much. >> steve: the book is called "my son and the after life." thank you. >> he's probably with us now. congratulations on having the first dead guest on your show. >> steve: there you go. >> elisabeth: eric, thank you. coming up, harry reid turns heads this week with this

they're in the senate. we're in a position here where people who don't believe in government and that's what the tea party is all about -- are winning. that's a shame. my counterpart, mitch mcconnell, said at the beginning of the presidency of barak obama that he had one goal, and is to make sure he wasn't elected. i say this seriously, i hope that that's based on substance. not the fact that he's not african-american. the word is out that mitt romney hasn't paid taxes for ten years. let him prove that they has paid taxes because he hasn't. men don't have jobs. women don't have jobs either, but women aren't abusive most of the time. men, when they're out of work, they tend to become abusive. >> brian: when he started talking, the room was full. little by little, they're like, i don't want to be in this shot. you have empty chairs behind him. >> steve: but women aren't abusive most of the time.
>> brian: how about this, this man's father is a wonderful human being. i think guy is a loser. remember, everybody knows the war is lost. >> steve: didn't harry reid also say that mitt romney killed a guy's wife? >> brian: somebody did. >> elisabeth: probably. >> steve: maybe it was an ad. >> elisabeth: he continues to insist it's the republicans that are block everything. while at the same time on the other side of his mouth, he says president obama is strong, strong, strong. unbending, will not negotiate, over and over and over again. i'm not sure he knows where he is on all of this either. >> steve: #what a statesman. harry reid in 90 seconds. >> brian: heather nauert, you have the news, don't you? >> good morning to you. #blamebrian. >> elisabeth: start trending. >> brian: tell us who to blame. >> blame brian. got some headlines. a retired marine trying to raise money for fellow veterans and this is his reward. a punch in the face.
brendan o'tool started a yearlong cross-country run last veterans day. but as he was getting ready to run this week, a man came up and attacked him. >> the fact that i'm a veteran is running through our streets insulted is unacceptable. >> came across and cracked me here. >> look at that. he ended up with a bloody face and possible concussion. police were able to arrest the guy who attacked him. but the good news is here action the race raised $100,000 for veterans. arizona police officer, he was told not to wear his police uniform when he dropped his daughter off at school. the reason? parents thought that a uniform and a service weapon were just too scary. the officer posted this on facebook after he got the call. nothing like a kid school calling and ask if i could pick up my daughter and not wear my uniform. are you freaking kidding me? a lot of parents sided with him, saying the school's decision was
shocking. the school is now doing an about face and invited the officer to a special assembly in full uniform to talk about what police officers do in the community. kids would love to see the uniform and the service weapon. then there is this story, it should have been a routine traffic stop, but it turned into anything but. an oregon state trooper pulls over a driver for speeding and what happened next is tough to watch. take a look. >> sir! please get back in the car for me now! i told you, you were speeding! (shots fired). >> shots fired! shots fired! >> the guy got back into his car and drove a half mile down that highway before police found him dead. his three children were in the car the entire time. the trooper was also shot, but he's okay this morning.
one of the most popular commercials out there is now getting some pushback. >> guess what today is. >> it's hump day. >> woohoo! >> it may be funny, but one school in connecticut is now banning the phrase, hump day, because they say it's becoming a distraction. sixth grade teachers at vernon middle school say it's not just wednesdays. kids are make every day hump day. it's getting so out of control, they say they're putting a stop to it and they are outlawing that phrase. think they might have something better to do that. extreme weather alert this morning. fema is recalling furloughed workers to help prepare for tropical storm karen. at this hour that storm is heading in the direction of the gulf coast. let's check in with maria molina who is tracking that storm for us. hi there, maria. how is this looking? >> basically it's looking a little bit better for people along the gulf coast. we do think that the storm is weakening. it's look very disorganized. we do have very dry air and
strong winds that are helping to weaken the storm system. again, a little bit of good news appears karen is weakening. we have hurricane watches in effect from grand isle, louisiana, to areas west of destin, florida. very widespread area that could be look at hurricane conditions as we head into this weekend. look at the tropical satellite. the center of the storm system is over parts of the gulf of mexico and most of the thunderstorm activity is east of the center of circulation. that is a sign it's weakening. the forecast calls for some intenseification as we head into the next several days. by sunday t could have maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour and stronger gusts than that. otherwise very quickly, i want to mention that we have another storm system currently producing blizzard conditions, one to two feet of snow and also winds of up to 70 miles per hour possible. on the warm side of that same storm system, we have a threat for severe weather from parts of minnesota, down to oklahoma. now let's wiggle on over to steve, elisabeth and brian who are with the wiggles. >> steve: we are.

anything wrong. we were trying to help the guy on the road. this is now turning into a fiasco. what's happening now is perhaps, according to one report, one of the assailants will turn himself in to the police. i predict that ray kelly and i've known him 25 years, he'll be strong and tough on this and we're going to see a lot of arrests in this case. >> steve: and i think you're talking about the guy who famously was using the helmet to beat in the window. >> and/or the actual person who assaulted the man and pulled him out of the car. >> steve: a couple days ago, it sounded like they let him off the hook. >> yeah. they're saying, well, we don't really know at this point. we don't want to go with the light charges. we want to go with the heavy charges. there is a lot of heavy charges, including gang assault, in my view that can be brought in this case. >> steve: a lot of people are going to be surprised to hear that now california attorney by the name of gloria allred has injected herself into this case. >> yeah, that's very, very interesting. that goes to this quotient of
somehow money is going to be coming out of this from this family based upon his -- my view, self-defense. his justified acts in getting away from a group of assaultive gang bikers. these folks have given bikers a bad name across the country. there are great motorcycle gangs, clubs. >> steve: absolutely. i think a lot of people, when you watch the whole video in total, i think the average person would probably do exactly the same thing the guy did behind the wheel. >> and his wife called the 911 repeatedly. that's the key. when you see gangs like this on the road, notify 911. if someone is harassing new this way, notify 911. and number three, if you act in a reasonable way to escape this kind of attack, then you'll be protected under the law. you can't let your family get killed, but at the same time, you got to do it in a reasonable way. >> steve: good advice on how to forget our self. thank you very much.

him and grabbed his arm. the wisconsin congressman was not hurt. police now investigating the attack and they believe it may have been sparked by the government shutdown. blame brian, though. always blame brian. >> brian: what. >> he had mentored khalid sheikh mohammed, the mastermind of the 9-11 attacks. and he just announced his candidacy for the president of afghanistan. the former islamist warlord has registered for next year's election. his pick for vice president, also a form warlord. nice. the newly wed accused of pushing her husband off a cliff will be arraigned in a courtroom in montana today. the 22-year-old, jordan lin graham, she was hiking with her husband, cody, when they got into a fight. she says that the fight became physical and that he accidentally fell off the cliff. court documents show that she told a friend she was having second thoughts about that marriage one week earlier. president obama officially calling off his trip to asia next week.
so who is to blame for that? the republicans. here is a statement from the white house press secretary. the cancellation of his trip is another consequence of the house republicans forcing a shutdown of the government. this completely avoidable shutdown is setting back our ability to create jobs through motion of u.s. exports and advance u.s. leadership in the largest emerging region in the world. we asked you, what will republicans be blamed for next? rocky says, the republicans should get blamed for my d in chemistry last semester. rachel says, blame republicans for the president's canceled trip. they would fund the trip over, but getting back, he would be on his own. and those are your headlines. what's going on? >> brian: let's talk about what really compelled us yesterday afternoon and that was the capitol shooting with this woman. 34 years old, with a two-year-old in her car. she was hearing voices reportedly, geraldo rivera, and this looks like a woman that
never shook postpartum depression. >> i don't know about that. i know everything that happened yesterday is in the context of the washington navy yard massacre. everybody totally on edge in the nation's capitol. everybody wondering where the next shoe is going to fall. here is the woman, i tell you, my first thought was did you ever sit -- this happened to me once, an old jaguar i had. i was right behind another car and i put the brake on and for some reason, my car kept going forward. i obviously, for one reason or another, i'm sure -- i confused the brake pedal with the gas pedal. that was my first thought when i saw what she did, that she just did that and then panicked and then the men running with the guns and everything else. i couldn't imagine that this was any kind of assault. then you do the back story and you find out that she picked up her child in brooklyn, heading home to connecticut. somehow ends up in the nation's capitol, 500-mile or i guess 300-mile detour. what in the world is she doing
there? why is the child in the back seat? i think i attribute a lot of what happened to just everybody being on edge. her panicking, but then her actions after that so inexplicable, you don't know. now we're trying to find convenient explanations. but as far as i can tell, she didn't have a whole lot to do in the mental health area, didn't seem to me that she was under a doctor's care. >> elisabeth: if indeed she did and if indeed we're look back at the cases that have come forward in recent days, certainly in the last year, we've heard a number of them having to do with mental illness, are we not doing enough in our nation? >> the problem is, two things happened. one, i was very intimately involved in the deinstitutionalization of the care of the mentally retarded as we used to call them. people with down's syndrome or so forth. that's one aspect of people with mental handicaps. the other one is the mentally ill. that's a whole different thing. that's people that could have
high i.q.'s. they could be hyper functional, many autistic, they can too one thing and not other things. i think in the area of the mentally ill, we've been woeful in giving care and services to those people out of the institutions. mentally retarded, i think those people really do get community-based housing and -- >> brian: it's a gray area of i think he's okay. >> if you're paranoid, delusional, i think those folks, really, most of them are medicaided. i don't know in this case, though -- i don't know how deeply this 34-year-old woman was engaged. >> steve: right. in the daily news today, there is a story, she was a dental hygienist, a doctor she worked for said in the last couple of years, she suffered a serious head injury. wasn't the same after that. another source describes her as bipolar. >> i think one thing, steve, and we can all surmise and the investigation will tell us -- we had that attack that heather noted at the top of the hour on
the congressman because of the government shutdown. i think when you have constant news coverage of the tension between the leaders and the division in washington and the dysfunction in washington, if do you have a mentally ill person, you can see how what is usually and traditionally an attraction for some nut jobs, can in this hyper charged environment become even more dangerous. everybody is on edge. the legislators in that building, the capitol cops are not getting paid. they're working without getting paid. everybody is very edgy. the context again of the washington navy yard massacre. i just think everyone has got to chill. >> brian: let's talk about new york city. in new york city on the west side drive, you had a man, his wife and young child in a car surrounded by bikers. looked like they were harassing them from the video we saw. now it turns out one of the guys is paralyzed and -- >> steve: he just hired gloria allred. >> brian: right. he's paralyzed. but the driver who was beat up
is going to be okay. the wife is speak out saying the family was threatened. what's your take? the bikers are pushing back, blaming him. >> let me start at the end. edward mense, the guy so seriously injured, may be paralyzed for life, you have to know that this person has been stopped and has at least 16 major traffic infractions, has no license to ride a motorcycle. we think he has a criminal record. his privilege to drive at all has been revoked in his native massachusetts. so i'm just saying that this guy really sounds like a punk. it doesn't mean that we want him to be injured or that he doesn't have, you know, a side of the story to tell in this specific incident. but these guys, you have to remember, go back to 1953, the movie with marlon brando "the wild ones." the motorcycle gang comes into town and take over. these outlaw motorcycle gangs got a certain catche and
everybody wanted to be tough guys, outlaws. >> brian: what about "wild hogs" with john travolta? [ laughter ] >> but my point is so then you had the hell's angels develop and then the banditos and they became criminal enterprises, kidnappers, rapers. i knew them very well. their headquarters in new york. i got to know -- >> steve: you were a biker. >> i'm a life long harley rider. but there is something about a mob, a pack where you could be a dentist. you could be a school teacher. you get in that pack and you assume, going back to what i said about brando and that mystique, you assume the tough guy persona. you assume i can stop traffic. i can do wheelies. i can outmenace the next guy. i think it feeds on itself as a malignant aspect to it that is
and can be dangerous, where meek and mild mannered, ordinary people, can assume the moment they're in that pack of motorcycle riders the outlaw persona. >> steve: well put. geraldo will go do his radio show. give our best to your one and only wife. [ laughter ] >> brian: now that we got that straight. at this have a transition, i forgot it. >> elisabeth: thanks. >> brian: here it goes. >> elisabeth: coming up, promises made, promises broken. families learning the hard way. the president was wrong about health care. hear one of their horror stories firsthand when we come back. >> brian: and no fun and games on the court. his girlfriend puts something on his back while he's playing on the course. >> steve: not amused. >> brian: he's watching, but still playing. >> steve: it's the bogey man. >> brian: there it is. it's a squirrel. >> steve: right back. >> brian: that's his office.

>> steve: famously in 2009, president obama promised if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. according to a new fox news poll, the majority of americans are happy with their current coverage. but thanks to obamacare, in the future, many are going to lose it. one of them, our next guest, who is losing her family's insurance and facing nothing but expensive alternatives. she's a small business owner and mother of two. she joins us from baltimore. good morning to you. >> good morning. thank you.
>> steve: okay. famously, the president did promise you can keep your health care, but you can't keep your plan because you got a letter from blue cross, blue shield that said what? >> yeah, i did. the letter -- i have it with me. it said that among other things, these aca requirements will cause your benefits to change to federally mandated health benefits. since your plan does not conform, the current plan will cease upon your anniversary date. you will be required to select another plan in order to comply. so i can't keep my plan. i can keep it for a little while. the letter goes on to say, my options, i can keep it for a short time, but ultimately, i'm going to have to pick a new plan. i went on to the web site which the letter directed me to do, and it's really confusing web site. it was not easy to kind of hunt and peck around and figure out what they're trying to offer me. basically the closest option i found to the dedid you doable
and co-pays that i pay now is $214 more expensive every month for my family. so that's 2500-plus a year. >> steve: that's got to be heart breaking to you, small business owner, mother of two. you're going to wind up paying if go with what seems like the best fit, you're going to pay $2,500 more per year. you know, president promised you could keep your plan, he would drive down the cost. so now to see the number, 2500 bucks, you must want to go and complain to somebody. it's like hey, this is not what we were sold. you got to do something about this. >> yeah. i mean, we've invited them in to legislate a situation where we've asked them to correct some things for a lot of people. i know some people that this has helped. i have a dear friend whose mother had a preexisting condition and now she gets coverage. i'm glad for her. but it's at the expense of my family and a lot of other
families. so it's an imperfect law, obviously. it's a hot mess. i think everybody would agree to that. >> steve: and one of the reasons that everybody's premiums are going up in many cases is because now they have to insure people who do have problems, preexisting conditions and all the prices are going to go up. i'm sure you have done the math in your head. okay. maybe i can afford this. maybe i'll pay the penalty. what have you thought about that? >> my husband and i have considered it. we've talked a lot of times about how it would be more cost effective for us to have no insurance, pay the penalty and just suffer those consequences. but it's a risk. and with small babies in the house, it's a scary risk to take. i'm not sure it's one we'll take. >> steve: no kidding. keep us posted. let us know what you decide. penalty or the 2500 bucks more per year, 'cause we're curious. thank you very much for joining us today from baltimore. >> thanks for having me. >> steve: do you have a similar circumstance?

>> elisabeth: welcome back. as part of the ailes apprentice program, our special series celebrating hispanic heritage month continues. when people told olga she'd never become a military pilot, it just inspired her to try harder. alicia has the story next. >> rick: -- >> of all the aircraft i've flown, this is one of the most amazing jets ever. it goes supersonic and to see the ground from the air, going as fast as we go in this jet is just incredible. >> rick: for those of white house have never been in the cockpit, what's it like? >> what i love the best is the view. i mean, you can't imagine what it's like.
it's just you, your jet, and the sky. you dance around the clouds and you see that blue sky. it's amazing. >> i had the best office with the best view. >> an army brat, olga was born in san juan, puerto rico, but grew up traveling all around the world. >> we lived in iran, taiwan, and in south america. so the opportunity of living in different countries was amazing. i admired my father because he was an exchange military attache. he was able to train foreign troops and we were able to live in all those places. >> the experience gave her an open mind and a quiet confidence that would later come in handy. >> i am open to all people, to all cultures. as long as you respect me, i respect you. >> at 16, wanting to follow in
her father's footsteps, she marched into the nearest rotc and tried to sign up. >> i asked the captain who was in charge, i said, i want to join the rotc, not knowing that women weren't allowed. but he never said that. we have a sorority here. i said no, no, no. you don't understand. i want to wear the uniform. i want to be an rotc. >> in an attempt to get rid of her, the recruiter gave her an entrance exam. >> i didn't fill out any application, any paper. i'm thinking i'm doing great, you know? turn it in, two, three weeks later i come back. he goes, i'm sorry you didn't pass. that was it. >> she later found out she had scored one of the highest scores ever on the exam. >> i realized, my god, i was discriminated. >> he would rather let you think you failed rather than tell you that you weren't allowed in? >> exactly. exactly. >> but olga moved on with her life, got married, had a baby,
and then opportunity knocked. her husband was in the air force stationed in panama at the time. she was with him working for the department of defense and the air force had an open house. >> there was a table and some pamphlets down there. i picked one up and the guy standing behind the table said, oh, yeah. the air force is recruiting women to become military pilots. and i went what? >> but she couldn't find an air force recruiter in the panama canal zone, so she went to an army recruiter. >> i walked in and oh, how can we help you? i said well, i am thinking about joining the military. oh, please have a seat. >> they began discussing what she might do in the army and olga got right to the point. >> i said, i want to be a pilot. he said okay. i said, yeah. and i'm married and i have a three-year-old daughter. the guy got up and said, well, thank you very much. there is the door. he kicked me out of the recruiter's office. >> what did you do?
>> i said okay. i didn't want to join the army anyway. thank you very much and i left. [ laughter ] >> but time was running out. a cadet had to enter pilot training before turning 26 1/2. olga was only months away. >> so i knew that if i didn't make it then, that was it. >> you were done? >> i was done. >> finally, she met a tech sergeant in the air force who was willing to help her fill out the paperwork. even though he had never recruited a commissioned officer before. >> i said not to worry. i got up. this is exactly what you need to do for me. >> you guided him? >> i guided him. i wasn't going to let anybody just tell me, i'm sorry, you didn't make it. >> at last it came down to filling out her top three career choices for entering the air force. >> i said, i want to be a pilot. that's all i want to do. i'm not going to take second anything. and the tech sergeant said, well, you need to fill out other two slots. i said, not really. if you're going to fill them
out, just put pilot, pilot and pilot. and he goes oh, okay. >> from there, she headed to lackland air force base where she became the first latina to make it through flight school. graduating in the top 5% of her class. what was that moment like? was it validation? >> i was just on cloud nine. no pun intended. i could still feel it right now. it's just incredible. an incredible feeling of accomplishment, of knowing that i made it. >> you earned it. >> yeah. >> it took a while. >> uh-huh. >> one of the best pilots i've ever flown with, male or female. she's very, very, very above average, outstanding. >> after her outstanding military career, she became the first latina to become a captain for american airlines. >> i don't think people should give up on their dreams. if there is something you're born to do, why not pursue it? >> after a 20-year career at
american, she retired, but not slowing down. she recently passed out college scholarships for the them to support future pilots. i read your mantra. what does it mean? >> if you want something to happen, you have to make it happen. 'cause if you really don't want it, it's not going to happen without you. you can't make people do things for you. you can't wait for people to come and give it to you. you have to go out and get it. i never realized that i was doing something amazing. i was following my dream. >> elisabeth: indeed, a most incredible message there. thanks to alicia for that. we want to send a special thanks as well to the randolph air force base for providing access and incredible aerial shots so

pieces going forward without luck. what are they going to do now? >> well, yeah, that isn't working. good morning to all you guys. you could argue it's a perfectly sensible thing. people say they want the national parks open. they want the national institutes of health open. so let's open them. the democrats are saying no, you got to open the whole government or nothing. and so far that strategy has held. now, of course, this whole question of the shutdown is getting linked to the question of raising the debt limit, which happens two weeks from yesterday, october 17th. that is a much bigger deal if the country were to go into default, that could tank the economy. it could tank the world financial markets. there are some people on capitol hill, republican, who are saying let's do a short-term thing to keep the government open for a few weeks or a month, also to raise the debt limit for a few weeks or month and let's get down to serious debt negotiations again. the so-called elusive grand bargain where you make a deal on
entitlements and on tax and on spending. democrats not very enthused about that just because they say we've been down that road lots of times before. it never happens. we don't make a deal with boehner. or if we do, boehner can't sell it to his republican caucus. there is some ideas out there, but i can't say there is a strategy and certainly no agreement on any kind of plan forward. >> brian: first off, thank you. you're really prepared for this segment. that answer was thorough. you surrounded the issue and came up with some facts and look forward. >> steve: what do you want from him? >> brian: i'd like to can the next question. chris, what i'm wondering is now we have the president of the united states give an interview with cnbc, which he says this time will be bad if we don't raise the debt ceiling, which i thought was extraordinary to have the president of the united states say look out, we're going to crash you. and then the speaker is quoted through his sources as saying that he will not touch the debt limit. he's going to raise the debt limit almost without a fight. what's your take on this? >> well, i understand why the republican -- the democrats are
doing what they're doing. you can argue that it's a strange policy, you're exactly right. i never heard a president talking down the economy, basically saying to folks, because the stock market has been pretty stable through all of this. he's basically saying, guys, you better panic. to add to that, we'll have treasury secretary jack lew on sunday, on fox news sunday, and i'm sure one of the things he's going to say is, guys, if we default, it's going to be a huge hit to the economy. and the point of that obviously is to increase the pressure on republicans. now, this thing of boehner saying, i will not let the country go into default because he supposedly has said this privately to some republicans, but then his office denies that he said it. the reason why that's a little quizzical to me because if he's going to put it out there, then he's really got no bargaining power. if he's basically saying two weeks from now, i'm going to raise the debt limit, then the democrats can sit back, refuse to negotiate and know he'll cave at the end of it. >> steve: you're going to have
jack lew on your show on sunday. he just sat down with -- catch your local listings for show time. he sat down with fox business news and had this to say about the upcoming troubles. >> there is the dangerous notion that there is always something else in the drawer. congress needs to understand that on tuesday, i took the last steps i can take to create borrowing capacity. i don't have any more what used to be called extraordinary measures. they're used so frequently that extraordinary seems a little bit of an overstatement now. they're accepted tools of managing to the limit. we don't have anymore. we just don't have anymore. and congress has to act. >> steve: see, that is scary. chris, when you couple that with what the president told cnbc where he said this is different. you should worry, that's scary. then when you couple that with clapper, the director of national intelligence, where he goes, yeah, i don't know if
we're safe because the shutdown. that's scary. it looks like the government is trying to scare the people who will then call congress and say hey, you republicans, let's get off the mark and pass something. >> when you say the government, i think what you really mean is the administration. it's an interesting thing because remember all of the doom and gloom about the sequester back last spring when the white house said look, if we have the sequester, these automatic spending cuts, it will be a disaster. guess what? it wasn't. i'm sure some people got hurt. i'm sure some programs got closed, but it did not turn out to be a disaster. and now they're saying the same thing where the markets kind of are going okay. and that relieves some of the pressure. and the administration wants to put as much political pressure as possible. look, a shutdown is a bad thing. a default, which has never happened in the history of our country, would be a much worse thing. but you got to take into account there are certainly political strategy at play here on the part of the president and secretary lew and all those folks and that is to try to up
the ante. liz claman did a great job with him. but ours will be much worse on sunday. [ laughter ] >> steve: all right. i was waiting for the insult. there it was. chris wallace, we'll be watching you sunday. >> thank you. >> elisabeth: we're now going to head over to heather nauert for some headlines. >> it should have been a routine traffic stop and it turned into anything but. an oregon state trooper pulls over a driver for speeding and what happened next is a little tough to watch. >> sir, please get back in your car for me now! i told you, you were speeding! sir! 5326! shots fired! 5326! >> after he gets back into the car, he drives a half mile down the highway before police found him dead. his three children were in the
car the entire time. the trooper was also shot, but he is going to be okay. this story is creating a whole lot of controversy this morning. the city of barto, florida, is fining residents a minimum of $25 a day if they put up these patriotic signs on their front lawn that say "god bless america." >> being a veteran, i felt like i was kicked in the gut. i just couldn't believe it, that i couldn't display my own love for my nation that says god bless america. >> city officials say residents are only allowed to display these signs on holidays that celebrate america. lot of people upset there. don't mess with tiger woods, even if you're his girlfriend. look at this. >> don't turn around. don't turn around. he's like, what the heck? >> well, that was lindsey vaughn right there. what does she have in her hands?

>> nicaraguan. >> elisabeth: but if you did grow up on tacos. >> yes. we all love tacos, right? we put food in the flour tortilla. >> brian: are you not going to do anything? >> i've got to tell what you to do. this is mahi mahi. >> brian: this is what i was hoping for. >> while brian prepares his taco there, we have some research that our research team put together. >> brian: wow. we're researching tacos? >> elisabeth: is it true that taco means sandwich, right? >> we have the history of the word taco. according to taco expert jeffrey m. filter, the word originates from the silver mines in mexico in the 18th century. >> brian: told you, ted! >> taco referred to the little explosive -- >> steve: by the way, the red sauce here is the explosive bit.

so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain and inflammation. plus, in clinical studies, celebrex is proven to improve daily physical function so moving is easier. celebrex can be taken with or without food. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides.

>> good morning. f.b.i. traced 34-year-old miriam carey's car back to this apartment complex. they evacuated it thursday as a bomb squad went through, searched her apartment. also f.b.i. agents were seen talking to some of her neighbors. when you speak with those neighbors, they say she was a quiet single mom, never gave any indication that she was capable of the events that we saw yesterday. no criminal record that anybody knows of. apparently she was a licensed dental hygienist who was recently fired from her job. when you talk to her family in brooklyn, they say they are trying to make sense of all this. they tell us that she apparently was suffering from some sort of mental illness, had also recently been treated for postpartum depression. so perhaps that will lead investigators to some clues to why she unraveled the way she did. when you talk to residents here, they say this is obviously out of the ordinary. no indication ever of this. that's the latest from connecticut. now back to you in the studio. >> elisabeth: thank you for that update.
